shades than even we were aware of It was the land of the unknownrendered even more so by inventive prose You got the feeling that visiting teams were waiting for the unexpectedpeculiarly they expected itand almost ready to succumb to it Either they werent aware of how to combat the conditions ormore likelywere just unwilling to A cricket tour in our part of the world brought out the best in the cricket writersrarely in the cricketers A couple of days ago I saw two giant New Zealandersthey of the land that had seemed beyond the unknown to usunderstand the sub-continent like it were their own And it suddenly struck me that the mystique had gone Jacob Oram and James Franklin seemed so at ease that they might have been bowling at Eden Parkindeed that Eden Park might seem as familiar as the Feroz Shah Kotla The world had shrunk and India was now the playground of the cricket world Two New Zealanders had beaten India playing an Indian game And soas the World T20 begins across the Palk StraitI wonder if knowledge of local conditions is a qualification anymore; whether slow bowlers who take the pace off the ball speak only in our accents Wristy players with exotic shots now hail from Irelandmystery spinners from Trinidad and even those from Dunedin and Hobart are increasingly at home in Pallekele and Visakhapatnam And so this is as open a World T20 as any you will see You could argueand you will argue fairlythat the smaller a match the more open it is anyway but in earlier editions the format was still unfamiliar and there were times when the slowlow pitches of the sub-continent could negate teams like New ZealandSouth Africa and England Not so anymore The IPL is now five years oldthe Big Bash has gathered steamthere is excitement around Englands T20 and little leagues have sprung up in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka As cuisines grow global so does shortform cricket To be honestthe groups dont matter anymore and the rankings still have insufficient data to make for fair and informed assessments As Australia have shown the number ten can be made to look correct and ridiculous in the space of two days Look at their matches against Pakistan In the 2010 event they got 80 in 6 oversthen struggled to make that much in 20 overs recently and a couple of days later bowled out Pakistan for 79 Any one of those days could have been a final so predictions will be foolhardy That is especially so because the news coming out of Sri Lanka is that the pitches have a bit of the spice normally associated with fish curries; that the ball is allowed a decent carry at Pallekele and that spinners of doubtful pedigree will have to do more than just turn a door knob to get help from the pitches I hope that assessment is rightfor good pitches will favour better cricketersjust as I hope that boundary ropes are placed a respectable distance away from the batsman The unpredictability makes this edition even more alluring The West Indiesonce the home of fast bowlingcould play with BadreeNarineSamuels and Sammy (three of them slowone just going past that definition)Sri Lanka could throw up another couple of unorthodox sensations to go with Malinga and Mendis (have been told to keep an eye out for Munaweera and Dananjaya) and even South Africathe land of the braai and seam-up bowlers might play three slow bowlers And with Sohail Tanvir and Umar Gul in formPakistan is the one country that need not bother about the surfacehaving bowlers to suit all kinds India lack death bowler If the tracks are indeed really goodIndia will be forced to play with fivewhich is how it should be anyway A team that has six quality batsmen and can play PathanAshwin and Harbhajan thereafter shouldnt need the security of another batsman at number seven If there is a weakness in this team it is the absence of a death bowler and the selection of Zaheer Khannever the most enthusiastic T20 cricketeris probably an attempt to fill that position But for the first time in years the team to watch out for is the West Indies I had suggested a couple of years ago that T20 might be the path to the revival of West Indies cricket and they certainly seem to play it with the joie-de-vivre that the format encourages A team of Chris GayleDwayne SmithDarren Bravo (or Lendl Simmons)Marlon SamuelsDwayne BravoKieron PollardDenesh RamdinDarren SammyAndre RussellSunil Narine and Fidel Edwards (with Ravi Rampaul and Samuel Badree around) plays at the senses Gayle will still be the talismanthe enforcer but there are many matchwinners down the line And almost all of them have

2008) and Mexico (July 2010) which proves that the FAA’s actions are independent of US foreign policy interests PTI Related News The US Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA’s) downgrade of India’s aviation safety rating couldn’t have come at a worse time — just when India was creating a positive investment climate in its aviation sector with several far-reaching reforms Barely 16 countries are in Category II which India has just been included in Bangladesh Belize Ivory Coast Congo Gambia Haiti Nauru Swaziland and Zimbabwe are some of the other countries in the category January 31 2014 will be remembered as a black day in the history of Indian aviation Ironically India’s downgrade happened in the month when the aviation world was celebrating the centennial of the world’s first commercial airline flight The last two years have seen a series of aviation sector reforms The biggest gamechanger was allowing 49 per cent FDI by global airlines in Indian carriers Other important reforms include lifting the ban on Airbus A380s allowing the direct import of aviation turbine fuel allowing external commercial borrowings for maintenance repairs and overhaul (MRO) removing import duties on aircraft parts opening up India’s bilateral rights to low-cost carriers abolishing the aircraft acquisition committee privatising leading Indian airports etc The safety ratings downgrade may set us back several years Sanctions by aviation regulators under the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) norms typically have a domino effect So far thankfully we haven’t seen a similar downgrade in other key regions like the EU Singapore Japan or the UAE There are however reports of a likely increase in the scrutiny of Indian aircraft landing in these regions Should a global downgrade happen the outcome will be significant The benefits of Air India joining the Star Alliance may diminish since its alliance partners may be prohibited from codesharing with it Jet Airways’ plans to expand its global footprint through the Abu Dhabi hub may suffer IndiGo and SpiceJet may not be able to expand their international services Start-up airlines like Tata-SIA and AirAsia may not be able to fly internationally even if the rule stating that an Indian carrier must be at least five years old and have 20 aircraft in its fleet to fly abroad is abolished The global downgrade may also negatively impact our airports and air cargo MRO general aviation tourism and hotel industries Global bids for airports in India may be affected Aircraft lease rents and insurance premiums may rise hurting Indian carriers The bottomline is that it’s time for decisive action on a war-footing But how did we get to this point India’s aviation industry witnessed phenomenal growth over the last decade It now boasts of several world-class airports and airlines Global players entered sub-sectors like cargo MRO aerospace manufacturing ground-handling training etc All this enhanced the scale complexity and reputation of the Indian aviation market Somewhere along the way ICAO regulations on safety didn’t receive enough attention These regulations judge sovereign safety regulators on eight key parameters — legislation organisation licensing operation airworthiness accident investigation air navigation and aerodromes The ICAO has on several occasions since 2009 highlighted shortcomings and the corrective action needed — but some of this went unheeded To be fair to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) it scores high on most parameters The DGCA seems to have scored low on organisation and licensing which are critical requirements In the end after repeated interventions the FAA decided to take the extreme step of a downgrade We have the option of either correcting our shortcomings or playing the “victim” and retaliating Though the latter could be counterproductive it can be used tactically at a later stage In the past the FAA has downgraded US allies like the Philippines (January 2008) Israel (December 2008) and Mexico (July 2010) which proves that the FAA’s actions are independent of US foreign policy interests While Mexico bounced back to Category I in a record six months Israel took four years The Philippines continues to be in Category II We may do well to learn from Mexico’s example We should work closely with the ICAO and FAA identify remedial actions the person responsible for affecting them and the deadlines for the same Flight operations inspectors should be hired from Indian carriers and the defence forces and trained immediately Many countries that have a large aircraft fleet but few local inspectors depend on global contractors We should explore that option as a short-term measure We can always phase them out later The necessary funds must be allocated by the government on a priority basis The financial losses stemming from the downgrade are several times what the DGCA needs The Civil Aviation Authority Bill has been hanging fire for various reasons The passage of the bill should be expedited The shortcomings of regulation and oversight procedures should be addressed immediately Perhaps we waste too much time on pointless debates till things reach breaking point Well time’s run out now The reaction of the Indian media has been quite mature There have been no jingoistic editorials Instead most have been critical of the Indian authorities Once India is back in Category I hopefully in the next six months or so we need a thorough post-mortem of this episode Heads need to roll The FAA and ICAO for their part should assist the DGCA in the spirit of collaboration Keeping India down is not in the best interests of the global aviation aerospace and defence industries After all India is a responsible democracy a
